Yoga to control Hair Loss

Tuesday, January 8, 2008
Hair Loss has become a common problem that even teen age people are being affected by it.There are various reasons for one to have hair fall like poor diet,Genetic factors,skin problem,pollution or stress.In order to control hair fall there are lot of medical treatments available these days but they are not proven to be effective and few of them may cause side effects.If you witness excess hair fall,then you should consult a Dermatologist so that you can get treatment suitable for your skin type.
Medical treatments apart,if we ask is there a non medical treatment for Hair loss,then the solution is oil massage and yoga.In Yoga,there are two asanas that helps prevent hairloss.They are Vajrasana and Pawanmuktasana.Lets see those in detail.


  • It ensures digestion and prevents excess wind formation.
  • Those suffering from knee pain should not practise this asana.
Description of the asana
  1. Sit on your knees keeping them together.
  2. Draw both toes together, and with heels apart, sit on them.Keep your hands straight on the respective knees.
  3. Breathe normally with your spine straight. Relax your hands and release the legs
  4. Now lie on your back or stretch your legs in front with hands at the back and relax.
  5. Take rest for 10 counts and repeat.
  6. Do this two times.

The Knee to Chest (Pawanmuktasana)

  • As the stomach is pressed and then allowed to go limp in this asana , the liver , urinary bladder, spleen, intestines and stomach are well exercised by it.
  • Helps one to get rid of constipation , improves appetite, releases wind and reduces flatulence.
Description of the asana
  1. Lie down on a mat . Exhale and stop breathing. Lift left leg, bend it and bring it up to the stomach. Let the knee touch the chin , with the rest of the leg touching the chest, press down on the leg, so that the stomach and chest receive pressure.
  2. Lift your neck and place your chin on the knee. Remain in this position as long as you can hold your breath. Then breath slowly, and straighten you leg. Put your head back on the floor.
  3. Repeat with the right leg.
  4. Repeat the same with the both legs
  5. Repeat the whole operation three times.
Though these asanas are recommended for hair growth,there is no guarantee that it will enable hair growth but if practiced regularly they will keep us fit for sure.

Hair loss is a problem that no one seems to want. Hair falling from the scalp is a universally common thing to happen; but the scalp losing out the hair permanently is something quite ungainly. No wonder then, there is a whole world of hair loss treatments out there, each with a diverse approach to resolve the problem. http://www.besthealthmed.com/hair_loss.html

a new hair does not begin to grow from the follicle. Excluding the cases of medical or illness induced baldness the answers to where and why this occurs are not well understood. In the majority of cases it appears to be connected to genetics and aging but not with diet, nutrition, nor is it a disease. hair regrowth products
